Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later. Council ref: 1775576.

Tarmac by seating area is cracking and area by grass is sinking. Phone box is sinking. Edge of path by drop kerb crossing area opposite the Sherwood shop is breaking away from road. Area opposite this shop where diagonal parking spaces is sinking. And similar is happening to road opposite side of broadway near the paint warehouse. Recently there were two episodes of burst water mains there. It appears, if you stand back and see the big picture that the whole area may be compromised and needs investigating.
